The Roux family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate across a number of neighboring appellations: Gigondas, Rasteau, Sablet et Côtes du Rhône.
A qualitative approach is also underway with the construction of a gravity winery, the adaptation of the planting of grape varieties to the land the air-conditioning of the cellar.
In 2007, one family succeeds another as the owners of Château du Trignon. Geneviève, Florence, Jérome and Jean Baptiste Quiot, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and the products of character, wish perpetuate Château du Trignon, in the same time of adding 10 hectares of Vacqueyras.
Brilliant ruby colour. A very rich palate that offers dark berries and a wealth of ripe, plush, blue-plum and blueberry flavors. Notes of toast, mocha, garrigue and cloves. The palate has a juicy, sumptuous feel and a rich, suave tannin build. A fresh and powerful attack. Full- bodied, complex structured with a delicate oaky finish.
